A Dog with Nice Ears was launched in Battersea Park, in earshot of the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home and a stone's throw from the Chelsea Hospital. Lauren Child stood on a chair and spoke to the baying crowd. There was a professional dog show where a small dog put a tiny load of washing into a minuscule washing machine. I've never seen such a thing in my life before then, but I swear it happened.
If you like dogs, have thought about getting a dog, or have a vivid imagination, you might like this book too.
